  • Next to the Plaza of the Salesas (C / General Castaños) lies this impressive baroque church which contains three sepulchral monuments of Fernando VI, Bárbara de Braganza and Captain General O'donell. Annexed to the convent of the salesas (now the Supreme Court) is accessed through an impressive staircase. Place of worship and frequented in the past by royalty, don't hesitate to visit it if it is located in the area. Highly recommended (free) visit.

  • Just look at the restored façade of the Church of Santa Barbara. So called because it was founded by Queen Barbara of Braganza, spouse of Fernando VI. The funerary monuments are found in this church and it should enjoy her beauty. Contemplate the wonderful altarpiece of the high altar, with sculptures of San Fernando and Santa Barbara, flanked by Religion and charity. Visit the Church and sit in this temple is contemplating a beautiful and vivacious Baroque art. The mausoleum of O´donnell is also located. We invite you to visit this temple and all the beauty that lies inside.

  • A very lovely church and at one time a convent. The art work is brilliant.
  • I love the architecture of the Santa Barbara Church. It is very impressive from the outside and also from the inside. I also like the beauty of the main altar.
  • The Church of Santa Barbara is the Church of what was once the convent of the Salesas Reales. This monumental Baroque church hosts inside, as important parts, the funerary monuments of Fernando VI and Bárbara de Braganza. An interesting visit place.

  • Probably the most beautiful church in Madrid. It is worth to visit it only by the staircase and façade, with its gardens. The interior is also nice, although comparatively stays behind. A must for lovers of sacred architecture.
